date for mitt romney, going to the white house to meet with president obama. >> making a run for it, a zebra and a pony. those are real pictures. welcome to "early start." this was sent to us yesterday. they said this is a serious and true story. i said no way. it is. john berman is hosting "starting point" at 7:00, it's now 5:00 a.m. in the east. first 33 days until we reach the fiscal cliff and things are heating up on capitol hill. tim geithner, the chief fiscal cliff negotiator will meet with congressional leaders in an effort to get talks moving. there's no time to waste because there may be 33 days to get a deal done, but congress breaks for the holiday. that happens in just 15 days. white house correspondent dan lothian is live from washington this morning. dan, that clock is ticking louder and louder what is the very latest? i hear there are one-on-one meetings happening today. >> that's right. these are the president himself not sitting down and talking with lawmakers, but timothy geithner will be on capitol hill and other senior level members of the administration trying t

? we've just had an election. the people had a choice between mitt romney and president obama who said let's have a balanced plan, and let's give tax cuts to the middle class. what is he talking about? this is about tax cuts. the president is saying, renew the payroll tax cut. give tax cuts to every dollar earned up to $250,000. i don't know what they're thinking, thomas. but obviously, they are putting it all on the line for the koch brothers and sheldon adelson who earn billions of dollars. they're selfish. and there's a group called patriotic millionaires who are saying please, please, tax us fairly. and here's the point. the president is saying to the millionaires and billionaires, we're just taking you back to the tax rates that you had when bill clinton was president. and i would like to remind everybody, we had the greatest prosperity then when everyone paid their fair share. 23 million new jobs. and why is it? because the middle class had the money to spend out there, to stimulate this economy. it's a consumer-driven economy. about 70% of the economy is consumer driven. and the

is underscoring his reasonableness. i feel like this is a reasonableness towards having romney to the white house, meeting with ceos who donated to romney going out there as michael crowley pointed out, we were chit chatting over the president, full disclosure, the president using a fair and balanced to describe his approach which is a republican line. >> never heard the phrase. >> but, you know, the question is, does that at some point backfire for him? the republicans seem to be pushing back saying this is extreme, insane, we can't believe this is -- >> i think the best contrast for what's happening is the stimulus bill that happened in 2009. it was the first thing he did after being elected in 2008 and did a dramatically different than what he did now. he structured the bill with the tax cuts in it and told republicans okay, come on board, you have about a third of the tax cuts in the package, that's what you wanted and he didn't give them an incentive to buy into the enterprise. he didn't allow them to claim ownership of the change to the legislation and did an inside game what melissa was ta
that, you know, that was the argument that mitt romney made, and he lost. and keep in mind, it's not just that president obama won, but the exit polls showed that half of the folks who voted for governor romney agreed with obama, that taxes on the high-income folks had to go up. so the challenge on the republican side, and it is tough, is folks like kevin mccarthy did get elected. and in his district, his no-tax pledge worked for him. these guys are in a very tough spot because they know at the end of the day they're going to have to raise these taxes. but doing so will cause an immense amount of political pain. that's why in my view, it's probably likely that we won't get a deal before january 1st. but on january 3rd, the senate sends a bill over. where now we're voting on a bill to lower taxes. the norquist pledge becomes irrelevant. in fact, they comply with the norquist pledge by voting for a bill that would provide tax relief for 98% of americans. so i just think this is a very difficult political situation on the republican side. you know, the speaker clearly knows that r
power lunch of 2012. president obama and mitt romney meeting for the frts time privately since the campaign after having been together serve times overall, including three debates. ruth marcus, and kristin welker. kristin what are they saying about the private lunch? not much, i guess? >> reporter: not a lot, andrea. they're tamping down expectations. jay carney saying there's no formal agenda to this lunch. of course president obama, during his victory speech in chicago, said he wanted to sit down, talk to mitt romney about his views how to move the country forward. you have to assume that would include a robust discussion of the fiscal cliff, given that is what lawmakers are talking about now. mitt romney just arrived here. we're not expecting anything huge to come out of this meeting. no appointment. for example, to the cabinet. but the president certainly, i think, hoping to engage in a serious conversation. this, as you point out, will be just the seventh time that these two have sat down after what was really a bruising fight during the election. this is really about sort

at length about the challenges facing the nation and their party. ryan praised romney and spoke out against divisive politics as some soft rind distancing himself from the 47% remark. paul ryan mentioned poverty 15 times and says that the gop has to stick to conservative principles and appeal to more voters. >> the election didn't go our way. the republican party can't make excuses. we can't spend the next four years on the sidelines. instead, we must find new ways to apply a timeless principles to the challenges of the day. >> marco rubio barely even mentioned the campaign and focus on conservative policy proposals. he says they will strengthen and expand the middle class. he says the middle class is struggling and it's harder for some people to reach out. >> there is a growing opportunity gap developing. millions of americans worry that they may never achieve middle-class prosperity and stability, and they worry that their children will be tracked as well. with the same life and problems. >> a rough count has it as many as 22 republicans actually talking about it. in a few cases, some peo
, congressional republicans as well as barack obama and if mitt romney had become president the same thing, and the last-- absolutely. stuart: we're going to unleash borrowing? >> i think what we need-- >> take off that ceiling and allow the the president to spend what he wants and therefore, borrow. >> let's talk about your friend reagan, i think 18 times he raised the debt ceiling, so, nobody held him hostage the full faith and credit. stuart: if we do that now, no limit, there's no debt ceiling at all, and president obama could just, just borrow it. no one from congress, but borrow it, what happens. >> would i love to see some responsibility on behalf of congressional leaders. stuart: you don't think we'd get a debt crisis. >> been threatening bond vigilantes and things in the past five years, i haven't seen it yet. stuart: unfortunately we're out of time, but i love that smile. >> thank you, i love being on with you, despite the fact, talking-- the highlight of my day knowing i was going to be with you. stuart: and i do not believe you. >> it's 100% true. it's true. stuart: julie, than
, for five minutes. mr. blumenauer: mr. speaker, mitt romney weathered a storm of criticism late in the campaign after hurricane sandy for his earlier comments about privatizing fema and turning responsibility back to state and local governments. but during an era of fiscal restraint and global warming, it's high time that we start this conversation in earnest. how big do you want your fema to be? how generous your disaster relief payments and how much do you want to pay for it? in today's "new york times" op-ed section, there's an article that points out potential liability for flood insurance alone is $1.25 trillion. second only to the liability for social security. right now we have arguably the worst of both worlds. the federal government responds to disaster usually paying too much for the wrong people to do the wrong things. we provide federal money to put people back in harm's way and sometimes provide infrastructure to make future risky development worse. we often take remedial action, like for theifying beaches, a temporary solution, that can actually accelerate erosion
of the election there. the mitt romney people pretty much told a lot of us they were confident it was going to be a long night and that they would win. i want to read you something from the new republic about team romney's internal polling. says the biggest flaw in their polling was the failure to predict the demographic composition of the electorate. the people who showed up to vote on november 6 were younger and less white than team romney anticipated and far more democratic as a result. so i want to ask you, erick, is this sort of a misunderstanding generally that republicans have to address the next time they go into an election about who the voters are going to the polls? >> oh, i don't think it's just a republican problem. i think if you look at rasmussen, gallup and a number of other pollsters out there, they all got it wrong. i think i was one of the few people on the right saying the polls weren't wrong and e vis rated by friends for saying that. at some point you have to realize the data's not lying. >> let me just say, i want to sort of unravel that a bit. we know gallup certainl
things for people over 55. and the fact that even paul ryan and mitt romney ran away from entitlement cuts in paul ryan's budget in the last election i think is a sign of where the american public is. they do want the rich to pay their fair share in taxes, but they really don't like a lot of the entitlement cuts. >> that's a fair point. that's a fair point. >> the entitlements affect everybody, to some extent. >> look. in response to what you were just saying about the fact these savings don't really kick in for ten years. that say legitimate point. look what we did in 1982. tip o'neil sat down with the most conservative president and one of the most liberal speakers of the house. when they reached that deal, today, we are reaping huge savings from that, so those savings ten years, 20 years, 30 years from now, those are going to be enormous. the problem is we keep punting every time we come to this and the most important factor in the budget is the fact that we got 80 million baby boomers that will be retiring in the next 20 years. >> as we found out, new immigrants aren't having as m
that was a vote winner, he wouldn't have put 86% of his tv ads. he ran a romney is a bad person campaign not look at how wonderful i have gotten the american economy. >> if it is on c-span >> you say here's what we want to do. we just elected a house which ran on the ryan plan. >> you are saying these are the reforms that we want. >> the president sits there and says what, because he hasn't put anything on the table that passes the lap test, hasn't put spending restraint. crazy democratic leadership, which for two years kept all the democratic senators from voting on anything. i want them to vote on something between now and 2014 because then they aren't coming back. >> if you are john boehner, speaker boehner, your proposal is -- your bright line is what? >> first of all, you want to have this conversation in public and whatever happens, you want it online. that gives you the moral high ground and allows the american people to focus on this. >> wait, what you are saying right there is a path to a deal, you're not saying they should go over a political cliff. you're saying they should fight for t
romney proposed. for the tax portion of this down payment, the decoupling of the bush tax cuts is the right way to bring in up front revenues. if they wish to have a spending cut component, fine, the ball is in their court. what sit? >> we've been specific about our down payment. what is theirs? >> if they have one on the revenue side, we'd like to see the specifics. we've been very specific. so far they haven't offered a single idea short of vouchering medicare that we all know is off the table. even mitt romney denied that one as the campaign went on. if republicans insist on spending cuts the on news is on them to come forward with some ideas t. president's budget continues over $300 billion in health savings. if they don't like that they should make a counter offer. we know that won't happen. we are waiting for some specific somewhere from our republican colleagues to show that they are serious on negotiations. >> three weeks ago the american people went to the polling places and they sent a message. democrats from president obama to our senate candidates on down built thei
to oppose romney. so that's like 2:1. >> you're not adding in the seiu. >> down at $14 million. i'm looking at the "wall street journa journal"'s page on super pacs. i've got the restore america's future 1rks 42, priorities usa -- >> if you add up all the super pa pacs, they barely balance out the union involvement. >> sciu was down ninth, 14.7 million. >> why are you arguing about this will? the results are out. >> are there lessons for business in the advertising campaigns by the super pacs? assuming that one side went wrong here, where did they go wrong? >> you're focusing on the super pacs and of course it's about the strategists and how they went about it. and the simple fact is the democrats understood the demographic changes whether you're talking about african-american, hispanics, single women. and understanding the changes taking place. i think the republican party is still rooted to a large september extent in the past. if you look at the nature of the people involved on either side, it was i think predictable that one set of advisers was in touch and the others weren't. >> martin
alike, including governor romney. it's time for us to act on those elements, to accelerate the reform. i note with no small amount of irony that the $716 billion that the republican ticket mr. romney and mr. ryan campaigned against the president on, paul ryan's budget included the same reductions and it's likely they will be in his budget that's coming forward. let's act on things that we agree. let's rebuild and renew america and find ways to save the money and puts on a path to fiscal responsibility that the american public needs and demands. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from oklahoma, mr. lankford, for five minutes. mr. lankford: in a few days we're going to have to resolve the fiscal cliff. eye roncally enough, something the house of representatives passed last may. in april set out a tax plan. in may passed a sequestration plan, went to the senate and said we're going to see you in the lame duck time period. we're in the lame duck and this had has to be solved. we have to solve the problem. the first thing is to define what the problem even is. it seem
